Question New paint for a Cig...

It looks as though I am close to putting a deal together to purchase a Top Gun. It is a older unit with original paint. It has great hardware and a new interior, but is in need of some fresh paint.
My question is this. The boat is currently in the western US, so is there a GREAT (not good) shop out there? Or should I haul it to Florida where they might have more experience with big Cig's.
I am looking to design a one of a kind paint job that will absolutely stop you in your tracks when you see it!
I have had GeoGraphics do some design work and was very impressed with their ideas.
Does anyone have any good or bad experiences? I want to hear them all!
Thanks
John

You should just buy the Hulk Hogan Scarab. That'll stop someone in their tracks. LOL!

What I am looking for here is good/bad reviews from people who have had a Cig painted before. I do not want to make a mistake here.

Locally, check out Vincent at LOTO. He painted my boat and He's done a lot of good looking cig's. Top notch work. I'm sure he can do just about anything you can dream up. (573) 369-3355, tell him Shorty with the Mach1 sent ya.

Also check with SSherman. Jesse James was done in St Louis and is a work of art.

That reminds me...who did the paint on the "Bad to the bone" boat?
Isn't that the Nitro Fish boat?
I love that paint, but I did not get a chance to see it up close.

Summer Obsession,
I had the graphics on a Bullet updated a few years ago. Dave Hunter from Ft. Lauderdale did the work. I would highly recommend him. He is great to work with and is very talented.

Here is before
